Colts’ QB Andrew Luck had shoulder surgery in January and it has plagued his availability ever since. He hasn’t played a game for Indianapolis in 2017 and the team finally decided that they would shut him down for the year. There is no timetable for his return as Colts’ General Manager Chris Ballard said that Luck might not even be ready for mini camp.
To better accommodate his rehabilitation, Luck is looking to have treatment on his shoulder in Europe, per ESPN’s Mike Wells & Chris Mortensen. Luck was finally placed on injured reserve on November 3 after finally receiving the news that he would not suit up for the Colts this season.
According to Chris Mortensen, the Colts will not “ignore” the 2018 NFL Draft in regards to selecting a quarterback. Backup QB Jacoby Brissett has also been starting the last eight games for Indy.
